Updated NYSHFA Board of Directors Governance Structure

Esq. Stephen B. Hanse in From the President

Following a strategic planning process, NYSHFA’s Board of Directors voted to refine its governance structure from a 14 District composition to an 8 Region statewide configuration. The Board of Directors also voted to establish a Multi-Owner Committee to focus on certain issues related to member organizations with 1000 or more skilled nursing beds at multiple locations. The Chair of the Multi-Owner Committee is appointed by the NYSHFA Board Chair and is a voting member of the Board of Directors. Additionally, the Board of Directors voted to include the NYSCAL Board Chair as a voting member of the NYSHFA Board. 

The members of NYSHFA’s 2018-19 Board of Directors are listed below. The new configuration is very similar to the survey regions employed by the NYS DOH and is illustrated on the NYSHFA Regional map that is attached. Each Region has a NYSHFA staff liaison that will work in partnership with the Regional Presidents and Secretaries to assist in coordinating Regional meetings, education and informational initiatives. Each staff liaison and their respective e-mail contact are noted on the NYSHFA Regional map. Please feel free to contact the NYSHFA Liaison for your Region if you have any questions or need any additional information regarding your Region.
